Glad to help.

I saw it on TV back in the day, but we only had a black and white RCA set at the time. My Dad insisted on waiting until color TV was "perfected" before he bought a color set. Me, I just wanted to watch Star Trek reruns in color, so we talked him into buying one...in 1972. :)

I too saw it in b/w. I remember the show because was trying to get us in and out of the tube for baths for baths before it came on. The three of us *Andy, Me, and Kevin) shared a bedroom in the hotel we lived at our Dad managed at and our room had at 14 inch b/w set.

Our TV set was an early-50s black and white RCA wooden console with a swivel base, and it was the key piece of living room furniture in our house (through several moves from one state to another) for about 20 years.

when we finally move out of the hotels (my Dad still managed) we got a GE set for the master bedroom and a Stellish-Carson(?)For the den. We had a living room but only used it for company and Christmas.

Was your Dad managing the hotel in Tuscaloosa when "Lost, Lonely and Vicious" was made? I think you said he was.

I really like that unusual little b-movie, by the way, and I'm glad there is such a good quality copy of it on the Archive (special thanks to Moongleam for the upload).

Yep Cos. From 1955-to the spring of 1960 we lived in the Stafford Hotel.

Does the hotel show up in the movie?

Yep. Around the early part of the film, the lead almost gets into an accident in back of the hotel. Thank you for the history and this postcard of the Stafford. BTW, the women in the black swimming suit with her legs in the water was my mom.
Quigs.

I only got my Dad's white goatee, so if I had a white suit I could go to work at KFC as a Colonel Sanders stand-in. :)

LOL. Actually, it's funny you mention him. When we were living in Lexington, KY. and having our first bought home on the market so we could go to Harrisburg/Mechanicsburg, PA.; a 1964 white Studebaker came up to our house and guess who got out of the car- the Colonel himself and his daughter.
I saw them first get out, screamed at Mom to come to the window and see who was checking out our home, and my mom yelled at my older brother to come down the stairs to see also. My older was just too busy to come at that moment. When he did come down and inquired what the fuss was, they had gotten back in their car and drove off. To this day, my older brother thinks I was seeing things and Mom is no longer around to cooperate the story.

That's funny! You can see Col. Sanders in a couple of grindhouse-type movies, Blast-Off Girls and Hell's Bloody Devils. The only wacky and colorful old celebrity like him that I ever met was Criswell from Plan 9 from Outer Space.

It's the truth, really. :+)
BTW, our film The Godchildren was turned down by Sundance so we have to redo some scenes and fix up the audio before our Director tries again. If everything fits into place, it could be out in the summer of 2014 at "a theater near you"

I'm not a big fan of big-name film festivals, so I wouldn't sweat it too much. Seems to me that the local festivals make more sense to shoot for, if any of them are. It's not what other people think of our work that matters anyway, as much as what meaning it holds for us and conveys to the people we know and love, who also know and love us, IMHO.

I believe you when you say that you saw Col. Sanders, BTW! When I met Criswell, he spoke of terrible disasters a few years down the road that would affect us all, but at the end of his talk he told me I had a "wonderful future ahead!" LOL!

It could have been worse...Australia didn't get colour TV until 1975! (there had been a limited amount of colour broadcasting prior to this in the country) Needless to say when colour sets became available they sold like hotcakes.

Wikipedia has this fun list:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timeline_of_the_introduction_of_color_television_in_countries

BTW, any chance of 1950s video-taped US colour shows becoming available on here? I know several (not many) such tapes still exist.

That 1960 Peter Pan I linked for Quigs comes close, being that it was in color and broadcast live and/or taped.

Speaking of Hotcakes: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NW9mDNEzgO4
